so journey began 1 months back when i started looking for a small car to be driven arnd by me and my dad in the city . first choice was to get vw polo , but it had a 6 month long booking period , so it was cancelled , next choice was to get i20 diesel but heard it had problems with the ac and suspension , so dropped it , then thought of buying the honda city but the increasing petrol rates and my liking of diesel engines made that not possible. till that point i had never considered the grande punto . then my friend yashik got the gp emotion pack , he was all praises abt the car , he showed me that fiat has increased the quality of its products . so thought would take a test drive , although i thought the interiors were lack luster at first , but they grew on me . the best part abt the car was the solid exterior build quality and its looks , ohhh wat can i say abt its looks , its a damn sexy car . the engine was not too loud and felt good while driving . the drive was descent but most importantly it felt stable . so i decided to get the grande punto active 1.3 , but as i was suggesting my family to get this car , they resisted a lot , referring to its poor history in india with its previous cars . but i had made my decision and i was not going to change it , after reading gp reviews on this forum my decision became stronger . finally my family caved in and i booked the GP active 1.3 in BNW colour . the lads at hind motors chandigarh are more courteous than the sales men at joshi auto zone . so after waiting 1 week for the delivery , finally getting the delivery of my italian beauty tomarrow . i plan to upgrade its tyre and alloys plus the ICE . the freedom to do ICE upgrade was one of the reasons i booked the active variant...will post pics tomarrow..
